What do you do when your transponder key stops working?
When you are in a rush, running from work to pick your kids up from school, or you’re rushing to an emergency and suddenly your transponder keys just won’t work, what can you do?
These setbacks can cost you valuable time trying to get in to your car again, time which could be used spending time with family and friends.
If you have been in these situations before then you know exactly how important it is that this problem is fixed ASAP. You also probably know that it is much quicker and easier to let an expert technician fix the transponder for you rather than trying to fix it yourself.

What is a Transponder and Why Shouldn’t I Fix it Myself?
A Transponder is a complex device that transmits a signal to a chip that responds to this signal. The easiest way to remember this is that both the words “transmit” and “respond” are part of the word transponder. (Transmit + Respond = Transponder.) This transmitting part of this is in your key. This part sends a signal to the receiver chip in your car that responds by carrying out the instruction that the transmitter sends it. This can be used to unlock and lock your car as well as open your boot and just about anything that can be remotely controlled.
This system is designed to increase the security of your vehicle so that only you can access the car using the transponder. The highlight of this system is that the car won’t start if the wrong key is inserted into the ignition.
Given the complexity of this system, it is clear that unless you know exactly what you are doing, fixing any problems with the transponder can lead to further complications.
